1955 Pontiac Safari - Details

Restoration of a very rare 2-door wagon. This very fine early Pontiac was purchased from Robert Pass, President of the Auburn-Cord-Duesenberg Museum. Robert originally purchased the car for his high school reunion, later selling it to Fred Zwicker, who had been looking for such a car for several years. Car is very original, including a new and correct Firegold and White Mist 2-tone paint job. Car has new interior, chrome, tires, and vintage air through original ducts.

Engine is Strato-Streak V-8, which was one of the most powerful engines available in 1955 when Pontiac started gearing up for performance. Transmission is Hydra-Matic (optional). This car is similar to the popular Chevrolet Nomad, although is longer (122″ wheel base) and wider and has fancier interior and exterior trim. Overall length is 204″. Curb weight – 3900 lbs. The plastic Indian Head on the ooh ornament lights up. Car is very rare – only about 15 are known to exist today.
